L. M. Boston's thrilling and chilling tales of Green Knowe, a haunted manor deep in an overgrown garden in the English countryside, have been entertaining readers for half a century. Now the children of Green Knowe--both alive and ghostly--are back in appealing new editions.
The spooky original illustrations have been retained, but dramatic new cover art by Brett Helquist (illustrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events) gives the books a fresh, timeless appeal for today's readers.

About the Author

LUCY MARIA BOSTON (1892-1990) purchased a ramshackle manor house near Cambridge, England, in 1935, which over a period of two years she lovingly restored. It is this house that inspired her, at the age of sixty-two, to take pen in hand and create the beloved Green Knowe series.

This book's main character is Ping who is a Chines boy. He is alone because he has no family. One day, he met a big gorilla, Hanno in the zoo. In my surprised, he understood Hanno's feeling. They became like a vest friends. However, a sad accident happened... I was so impressed by this story. I thought, the animals have a mind like a human. This book taught me something important. I reccommend you this book.
